Naughty Dog’s The Last Of Us releases tomorrow and has already received hugely positive reviews across the board, (here’s TSA’s review) placing it as 2013’s highest rated game.
In The Last Of Us humanity is ravaged by the devastating Cordyceps virus, leaving the world to be reclaimed by nature. Our “A Grounding In Reality” piece shows how this fictional virus outbreak isn’t that far off becoming a reality one day.
Sony have created “Apocalyptic Britain” images depicting key landmarks in the UK before and after following this virus outbreak. Landmarks such as Buckingham Palace, Brighton Pier and the Angel Of The North are shown in their prime only later to be destroyed by the onslaught of nature taking its old ground back.
It’s really impressive, and further hits home the idea of the magnitude a devastating fungal or viral infection could have on the UK, nevermind the world.
